The children at the nursery love playing outside in the garden. Pre-school and Toddler rooms 1 and 2 enjoy using our outdoor resources such as the climbing frame, trikes, mud kitchen, sandpit and water feature. The children engage in imaginary play based on their own ideas or first-hand experiences when playing together outside and create different scenarios. They especially love making ‘food’ and ‘pies’ in the mud kitchen for each other, which they may mirror from what adults do.

The children have access to a wide variety of materials and resources both inside and outside that stimulate their imagination to build, become and experiment with their imaginative play and thinking.

They love playing with each other on the climbing frame and have been enjoying running after bubbles in the garden. The children love sensory play and playing with the mud and bubbles can help with their development. Play is spontaneous, flexible, and unique to each child and we provide a range of resources to allow them to explore this.
